I have without consulting him, inclosed a letter from my friend Judge Roane: I pray you to comply with his request: finish off your character by saving us again. ViU : Edgehill-Randolph Papers.
I present you with some of my labor in the good old cause. Would you grant me your permission—after a suitable preface—just to publish an extract from your letter to me, about the judiciary pressing us into consolidation?— ViU : Edgehill-Randolph Papers.
I finished with Mr Ladd last night. The rough drafts of the accounts and explanatory notes are made. In a memo attached to your answer, you say that the estate of Bathurst Skelton must be credited “ 1773 Jany 31 By a credit with J. Fleming’s creditors Exors for three slaves bought of that estate £210.”— Mr Ladd and myself are at a loss how to understand this.— Judge Fleming
While I take liberties with letters of a friend without consulting him, and without any other sanction than the motive which governs me, I fear I force myself in upon you, with a very offensive kind of intrusion: I hope the same pure motive, will secure to me your generosity and forgiveness.—only see what you can do for our country at this Crisis! a favorable word from you would secure the...
Yrs of the 23. I rec d yesterday. I find you had not rec d my second letter from Richm d of the 20 th —To that I daily expect your reply. I inclose an acco t which you will return to me. The bills under date of Sept 1769 drawn by
I delayed answering yours of the 4 th ult: until I had seen some of our fellow Citizens most likely to favor the important object of the communication with which you honored me, and also until I had visited Petersburg . Your letter , and the introduction to the subscription paper , presented the case with so much perspicuity and force, that I could not well avoid taking the liberty (for which...
Am I right or wrong? P.S.    I am informed that Mr Wayles had an interest in Byrd s Lottery, and that if his papers were examined, we perhaps might find documents to enable us to recover many lots. Is it worth while for me to make the search? Say in what years RC ( ViU: TJP-ER ); dateline between signature and postscript; addressed: “ Thomas Jefferson Esq: monticello Post office— Milton v a ”;...
I hope the motive, which induces me, to break in upon your valuable time, will afford some apology. Without asking permission of Judge R. I take the liberty of inclosing this letter to you. This illustrious patriot knows the whole ground.—notice his efforts—his mighty efforts: he says “ his name will settle the Controversy.” My obscurity—my humility—forbid me to ask or expect a communication...
I received at Eppington three days ago, your favor of the 3 d ulto: —It is to be regretted that our cross mails are so uncertain and dilatory. Agreeable to your request I now inclose Stith’s original receipt ; to provide against any miscarriage I have retained a Copy, certified by Mr Charles E. Hay and myself, which I will files file in the bundle of papers from which the original receipt was...
Permit me, to take the liberty, of introducing to you my nephew Richard Kidder Meade, son of my brother in law of that name. His father has a family of children and wishes to locate himself at or near to the University. He owns a large estate in lands and slaves in Brunswick county. He wishes to sell out his lands, and with the funds purchase other lands in Albemarle whereon to settle his...
I inclose Mr Ladd’s report—I beg leave to invite your attentive perusal, and receive your remarks.—as to the balances amongst ourselves, we can adjust them to our satisfaction after a decree.—If you wish any exceptions taken, you can draw and inclose them to me.—I am at present inclined to think we had better not except. We can may call for a further account of Fleming’s estate— as I see no...
There was no prospect of doing any thing in the country, I engaged Several citizens in Petersburg , to get Subscriptions to the Central College and they inform me, that the attempt was vain. Being a bad manager on my farm , and all my funds being in lands & slaves (very unproductive property to me): I regret that the application finds me without pecuniary resources: not having yet made any...
I did hope to have had your business ready before this.—I was to have attended Mr Ladd on the 29 th until and remained until the report was finished and ready for your revision—as it was your wish not to be delayed in Richmond — Unfortunately I was seized by a violent attack of the Rheumatism in my right hip; which has confined me to my bed.—altho’ in perfect health in all other respects, I...
In my answer to your favor of the 18 th ult I omitted to remind you that the Will of R.S. is most clearly admitted by the bill for it alleges “that the said R.S. made his testament and last will with all due solemnities bearing date the 15 th day of May 1759 , and in it he devises his whole estate real and personal to his wife Elizabeth and her heirs for ever” &c. However it will be better to...
Since writing the inclosed letter on reflection I doubt whether it will safely reach Mr Eppes on his travels; I have therefore taken the liberty of covering it to you, with a request that you will break the seal, as the contents were intended to be made known to you. If I should appear presumptuous, I have only to offer in extenuation of my conduct the purity of my motives, and to rest on your...
Yours of the 29 th ult , I had the pleasure of receiving yesterday. Having I believe a very clear- view of all matters of Account in detail now pending, I feel much confidence and certainty in advising the application of the £210.—provided you are satisfied that you never paid the actual money to the Exors of John Fleming —For the surv g executor Judge Fleming waited on the Commissioner with...
I wrote to you a few days ago, merely to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 27 th May , and to apprize you of its long passage, that I might stand before you acquitted of any charge of seeming delay in complying with your request, which I have since fulfilled with cheerfulness and pleasure, as I always shall do on any occasion to serve you. The papers of Mr Wayles from perceptible...
I have been here five days, and from morning ’till night employed with Mr Ladd in stating Skelton’s accounts—His investigations are made with so much care and deliberation that about one third of the labor remains yet to be done—I shall continue with him until Sunday—We differed at first very frequently but on unfolding all our testimony, the Commissioner seems now to agree with me—and I hope...
